Hacking has been one of the main problems of PUBG Mobile. The more the game rises in popularity, the more hackers it attracts. These hackers ruin the fun in the game for players who play fair and square. With the help of the community who report these hackers, the devs aim to improve their anti-cheat system and ban those who modify the game to gain an unfair advantage.
